Spies and/or damned lies?

The rumours flying around before Christmas have resumed. Mainly at the agency of former spy handler Martin Ingram (not his real name). His Cryptome article produces no direct evidence, but makes some big claims. Sinn Fein’s leader in the Dail, Caoimhghin O Caolain has promised to take Ireland on Sunday to court over its allegations that he was Garda spy.The Sunday Times kicked off speculation about two prominent Sinn Fein figures. Danny Morrison reports that the view inside Sinn Fein is stoical in the face of what he believes is British intelligence “dirty tricks” and “trial by media”. However Suzanne Breen picks up some dissent beyond Belfast.
